.c. annie grower, a contributor to the see the people blog on the washington post website and martha burke, the money editor of ms. magazine and producer and host of "equal time with martha burke." you look too young to have been there. lynn, i want to ask you what did being there on that important day 50 years ago mean to you as an african-american woman? >> on that day 50 years ago, it was just the most amazing experience i'd ever had in my 16 years. you have to look at it in retrospect, we sometimes see things that you didn't see then, and you have to remember that at the point the people converged on washington, we as a community were off of a very hard fought battle in birmingham, in albany george. >>, in mississippi, in alabama, people were struggling to have the right to citizenship, the right to vote, the right to public accommodations. people were being jailed and this was a culmination of those efforts to come to washington and petition the federal government to intervene and insure that in fact all citizens have equal treatment. >> annie, you were there, too, 50 years ago. again

's press conference, the president heads off for his august vacation today. he will have on martha's vineyard in massachusetts. local fishing reports i checked today seems to indicate maybe martha's vineyard is hoarding the striped bass this summer since none are make it down the cape. president gets eight days at martha's vineyard for august vacation which is not fair because i don't think he fishes. august is supposed to be recess time for congress. look at them rushing to leave last week, bolting for the exits. get me out of here. august recess time in congress used to mean vacation, right? time off from politics. now it means congress rushes home not to vacation, but to the screaming town halls. orchestrated for maximum confrontational youtube ability. this newly shoutty political august can be fun as far as politics goes as long as you're not the one being screamed at. if you're not just a back bencher, if you're in the congressional leadership, you actually have more to deal with right now than just the crazy town hall think. recess for the leadership means traveling all over
in. our white house correspondent dan lothian is in martha's vineyard where the first family is on vacation. dan, why did president obama decide to take this step this week? he canceled joint military exercises between the u.s. and the egyptian military. >> reporter: that's right. he did, brianna. and the main reason is because of the escalating violence on the ground in egypt which you have just been talking about. the president condemning that violence, condemning the actions of the interim military government there and the security forces, but also there's been this sort of level of frustration within the obama administration at the slow pace of the transition from this military interim government to a democratically elected civilian government. the obama administration, at least officials within the administration, had been discussing this as an option. in fact, back in june at the time that the administration decided to delay the delivery of those f-16s, it was brought up as an option to pull out of these biannual exercises known as bright star, but it was only on wednes
martha raditz tells us what this could mean for the united states. >> evidence of a chemical attack in syria is mounting. new images showing the horror. the president spent the day huddled behind closed doors with his national security team, weighing the evidence and has military options. >> we are still gathering information about this particular event, but it is very troublesome. >> among the options on the table, targeting syrian military or government buildings cruise missiles. four navy warships are in the area with tomahawk missiles. u.s. fighter jets could also attack, firing from outside syrian airspace so pilots would be out of harm's way. >> the administration has been very forthcoming in saying that risk must be low. we cannot risk getting servicemen and women hurt, and we don't want to get pulled into another quagmire in the middle east. >> nothing will happen until the u.s. confirms the chemical attack. syrian state tv claims the rebels were behind the attack. abandoning the position that no chemical attack occurred. u.n. officials in syria are pushing for access to the

it all. >> reporter: good morning to you. before president obama begins his vacation here in martha's vineyard, he will stop in orlando to speak with disabled veterans. edward snowden has everyone talking today. it comes after a news conference on friday announcing snowden played a role in the timing that he wants to enact new measures to enact the surveillance program. the president announced working with congress to reform the nsa program that collects telephone data mandating more transparency by the court. creating a team of private citizens including activists to review the program. chuck todd asked president obama if snowden is a leaker or a patriot. here is what he had to say. take a listen. >> i don't think he was a patriot. as i said in my opening remarks, i called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before mr. snowden made the leaks. >> reporter: now president obama also, for the first time, addressed his decision not to meet with russia's president, vladimir putin on the sidelines of the g-20 summit. a number of factors went into that decision, including
of blacks in the white house. >> yes. >> this is a q&a for a couple of years ago about the martha washington's slave -- pick it up at the end. >> she found out early 1796 that martha washington was planning to give her away as a wedding gift. during slavery, slaves were given away. this was upsetting for her. because when they died, they would free individuals who were slave to them. and she had hoped down the road she would be out of the institution. but if she's going to be given away, that meant her whole life was going to be in slavery. she's going make plans to escape. she writes, she talks about later, one evening, late spring, 1796 while the washingtons were silting at the dinner table waiting for her to serve them, she went out the back door. rather than say, you know, she escaped, we don't like it, but we'll leave it alone. george decides to kidnap her. they send a nephew back to kidnap her which was actually fairly common. >> how many stories in history like this, slaves in the white house? >> many stories. there were african-americans in the white house, except the james buchanan
. >> and then he is off to martha's vineyard for a vacation. and the mere mortals are upset because the roads are closed. >> i have no problem with president obama. if he likes to wear that little helmet and ride a bike in martha's vineyard, that's fine. >> i mean, give me a break, goldie. >> you know, president bush spent more time on the crawford ranch i believe than he actually spent in the white house. so if we want to talk about vacations, we should first talk about the last commander in chief. this president has every right to take a vacation. he has every right to play basketball or any other hobby that he may have or play golf, just as speaker boehner does. these kinds of assaults on the president i think again are due to what i call obama derangement syndrome. they just can't believe that an african-american man is afforded the same rights as any other white president who has held that office. >> rev, quickly, the congress is also on vacation. >> no. >> sure. >> they've had one vote on jobs-related legislation, not on the mortgage thing that the president was talking about this week.
fighting the revolutionary war, martha washington ran their plantation. >> it is clear that martha arrived at mount vernon in 1859 and there was a lot of management that she had to do. when she married george washington, she brings with her to mount vernon 12 housemates. that is really almost unimaginable luxury. these are slaves that are for the most part, not field labor, not producing crops, which is where your income is coming from. they are doing things like cooking, serving at table, clean the house, doing the laundry, doing selling, this is not productive labor in the sense that it is not productive income. she brings them with her and she brings financial resources to the marriage as well as her managerial skills. it makes mount vernon a successful operation and it makes it possible for washington to be away for eight years fighting a war. the fact that he has this support system that enables him to volunteer his time and talents to run the revolution is clearly critical. first, a farm manager, who during most literal revolution is a distant cousin of washington. \washington. then
